  • Vegas’ Mathew Baca in Top Gun...

    For Mathew Baca of Las Vegas, summer is not time for rest and relaxation.

    The Robertson junior-to-be was one of the premier running backs recognized in the recent regional Football University camp in Denver. Based on his performance there, he was invited to take part in the Football University Top Gun Showcase July 16-18 in Dublin, Ohio.

    “This is the best collection of high school football talent in one place at one time,” said Erik Richards, national recruiting coordinator for All American Games, which stages Football University and the showcase.

  • Robbers, Topes both rained out

    Monday night saw scheduled games for both the Las Vegas Train Robbers and Albuquerque Isotopes scratched due to weather.

    The Robbers were slated to host one of their last several home games — a tilt against the Pecos League North’s leader, Trinidad — at Rodriguez Park. But steady rains throughout Monday in the Meadow City left the field unplayable.

    Las Vegas was scheduled to play the Triggers in a “home away from home” game on Tuesday night in Santa Rosa, then return to the road.

  • Vegas’ win streak ends

    The Las Vegas Train Robbers saw their season-high six-game winning streak come to an end with back-to-back losses at Garden City (Kans.).

    Robbers were held to five hits in a 3-1 pitchers’ duel Thursday night, just a day after their team-record 32-9 rout of the Wind. Zack Russell-Myers went the distance on the mound for the home team, striking out seven and allowing one unearned run on five hits and one walk.

  • Mora-La Plaza: Instant classic

    Mora Little League’s Juniors baseball team recently made history by capturing its first-ever District 4 championship in front of its hometown fans.

    And the guys in green did it in such a way that Hollywood couldn’t script any better.

    La Plaza Little League’s Juniors All-Stars had a strong start to the championship game, grabbing a 7-2 lead going into the final set of at-bats. La Plaza was three outs away from the title on enemy turf at Mora High School’s field.
